Genomic amplification of the VP1 gene of SAT-type foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) was performed with published and novel oligonucleotide primers. The primer pair with the highest SAT-type recognition (67%) was identified and selected for optimization. Modifications to primers significantly improved SAT-type detection (100%), broadened the recognition(More)
The nature of selection on capsid genes of foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) was characterized by examining the ratio of nonsynonymous to synonymous substitutions in 11 data sets of sequences obtained from six different serotypes of FMDV. Using a method of analysis that assigns each codon position to one of a number of estimated values of nonsynonymous to(More)
Urban planning is a very important issue to guarantee the sustainable development of modern towns. Many aspects must be considered and one of the most important is the population growth. Having a correct control of this phenomenon it is possible to focus the efforts, resources and investments in the right direction. To anticipate the facts and as a(More)
